Mary loves working with people and finds the most joy in finding clients their next home. A lifelong Chicagoan, Mary received her BA in Education from the University of Illinois in 1984 before becoming an elementary school teacher. Despite her love for teaching children, Mary decided that she needed a change and moved on to become an office manager at a CPA firm, where she worked until 2002. However, she always knew that there was something else that would satisfy her love of helping people and in 2002 she decided to pursue a full-time career as a realtor. Mary became a realtor on the Northwest side of Chicago. The results of her career change have been nothing short of amazing. Mary has received recognition for exceptional service, including awards for exceptionally high client satisfaction and excellent sales performance. For the past two years, Mary has been named as one of Chicago's Top Realtors by Chicago Magazine. In addition, she has her SRES (Senior Real Estate) designation in order to familiarize herself with the unique needs of seniors navigating the Chicagoland real estate landscape. Mary resides in Norwood Park where she loves taking walks throughout the neighborhood on warm evenings admiring the many Victorian style homes on large lots that are a beloved characteristic of the neighborhood. She enjoys taking in the culinary delights that Norwood Park and its next door neighbor, Edison Park, have to offer. Mary is thrilled to be a part of Dream Town. She loves the philosophy here and looks forward to working with clients to take care of all their real estate needs whether they are in the market to buy or sell.
